Actress Gillian Taylforth, star of Hollyoaks and EastEnders, talks about her Silhouette Soft thread lift procedure, performed by Dr Aamer Khan, in preparation for her 60th birthday.
What risks are associated with thread lifts?
Silhouette Soft technology is based on 6 years industry experience in suture suspension in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, called Silhouette Lift which received FDA approval in 2006. The threads are manufactured under strict quality controls in the United States and are used by plastic surgeons and doctors internationally.
Common temporary side effects include bruising and swelling which resolve in 5-10 days. You may also experience puckering or dimpling at insertion points which normally disappears in a few days.
